Italian term or phrase: facciata in laminato
Context:; interior design and architecture


Ci siamo chiesti fino a che punto - spiega Alba Cappellieri - una facciata effimera in laminato potesse cristallizzare le istanze di poetiche architettoniche dissimili o finache antitetiche e, in caso affermativo, che incidenza avrebbero poi avuto su di essa i vincoli strutturali, dimensionali ed estetici di un materiale “misterioso” come il laminato da esterni

facade in laminate
Explanation:
Facciata is usually translated as "facade" or "face". The Penguin Dictionary of Architecture defines facade as "the front or face of a building, emphasized architecturally", which seems to be the case here. FYU, "facing" is "the finishing applied to the outer surface of the building".
As to "laminato", it's always a tricky word since it can refer to a number of different materials, although here I would assume it means laminated or rolled metal. Hope this helps.
